Very nice beer smooth pumpkin tastes with a heavy finish of Nutmeg. I like Nutmeg so I liked the beer others that were looking for a strong pumpkin need to look elsewhere, but I will buy it again. It also has a new label for 2014 that was quite entertaining.

When I drink a pumpkin ale I want to know I'm drinking a pumpkin ale. This is what a pumpkin ale is supposed to taste like. There's nothing subtle about this beer. The pumpkin taste and aroma hit you right away along with hints of cinnamon, nutmeg and allspice. It's like a liquid pumpkin pie minus the terrible sweetness. And you can drink it guilt-free knowing they only use the best, freshest, non-GMO ingredients and sustainable business practices.

It's definitely not bad tasting, but it is a poor representation of the style. The fruit juices added and the abundance of cinnamon make it taste more like a mulled cider than a pumpkin beer.
